Our Mission

Women Who Startup Foundation aims to empower women entrepreneurs to build successful businesses. The early stages of entrepreneurship is a key phase to innovation and invention and we are committed to supporting women seeking resources to take their ideas to market successfully.

Women Who Startup Foundation breaks down barriers for women to build successful businesses so that we may effectively improve the percentage of women building profitable, sustainable million-dollar-plus businesses. Our virtual network, local events and global mission is focused on the success of women entrepreneurs.

Our Programs

Basecamps

Our monthly event series in local startup communities is our grassroots approach to getting every community to launch their own Basecamp where you gather, connect, learn and shine a spotlight on local entrepreneurs to learn from. Basecamps are focused on knowledge sharing through storytelling.

Education

We’re committed to creating digital education that is accessible anywhere at anytime for entrepreneurs who are seeking to learn how to best take their concept to market.

Women Who Startup Summit

Our annual gathering celebrating women in entrepreneurship is a key event to convene and learn from successful entrepreneurs and mentors.

Grants

We are working towards offering annual pitch competitions for women entrepreneurs to win Grants. We know that access to capital is a challenge for women entrepreneurs and we are dedicated to improving that.

Technology

We are founded by technologists and entrepreneurs and our intent is to empower women in tech and innovation to develop creative solutions to help women entrepreneurs gain access to resources and capital better than ever. We will focus on technology efforts with community events and hackathons to inspire new products that our Foundation could use to connect more women entrepreneurs into opportunity.
